In brief: Crohn's disease
Regional enteritis is another name for crohn's disease, named so because crohn's tends to cause skip lesions, affecting discontinuous portions of the bowel.
Crohn's can affect any portion of the bowel from end to end. Proximal enteritis affects the proximal, or higher portions of the bowel, including duodenum and/or jejunum.
